Disappointed, but not surprised

By From page A5 | November 14, 2012

EDITOR:

I picked up my copy of Friday’s (Nov. 9) edition, and lo and behold, there were nice big bold headlines on the front page of the winners of candidates supported by the Mountain Democrat, but not one single bold headline reporting the results of the election of the President of the United States. If you read the column regarding the fact that the local voters remained conservative, then you got the figures for the Presidential election. However, they were skewered by the fact that the El Dorado County residents supported the eventual runner-up. This is certainly not surprising considering the policy and leaning of the Mountain Democrat. However, would it have been too painful to at least report that there was a winner of the election for President? Perhaps you should change the name of the paper to the “Mountain Republican.” It would certainly be more fitting.
